Update statement from Jet Linx Aviation
Jet Linx Aviation president & CEO, Jamie Walker and base partner and president of Jet Linx Houston Lance Welch issued a joint statement on the situation after the incident at Houston Hobby Airport.
“Our Jet Linx Houston hangar and several of our aircraft at Hobby Airfield sustained significant damage from ‘a wet microburst’ which, according to the National Weather Service, ‘produced winds up to 80 mph over Hobby Airport around 11:53 PM CDT Tuesday night.’ Our Jet Linx Houston team, alongside the FAA, Houston Hobby Airport officials and Global Aerospace are currently assessing the full extent of the damage.
In the meantime, Jet Linx flight operations at Houston Hobby will continue without delay or interruption. We will be operating all flights from the Jet Aviation FBO terminal, which is our already established Houston Hobby FBO partner and hangar landlord.
The Jet Linx fleet of more than 100 aircraft will ensure that Jet Linx Houston flight operations will remain fully operational. We will continue to provide updates as developments warrant.”
